In brief: Probably not

When you hear hoof beats in the distance, it is probably a horse coming your way.
It might be an antelope, or a zebra, but probably not. Herpes outbreaks in and around the nose are common can appear exactly as your described. Staph, though possible, is less common. I would trust your md, but if it persists beyond 2 weeks or gets more complex, no one is offended by a second opinion or further tests.
